"Enshrined by Grace" comes off the group's upcoming album, "Heretic", due on September 23 (a day earlier internationally) through Earache Records.

(Diet Of Worms) studios in Seffner, Florida and was co-produced by the band and longtime front-of-house mixing engineer Juan "Punchy Gonzalez. The album — the group's ninth overall release (including their 1986 "Abominations Of Desolation" demo and the 1996 live album, "Entangled In Chaos") — marks a return to the fold of bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker, who originally left the band in early April 2001 due to "personal and family problems." Tucker was temporarily replaced by HATE ETERNAL bassist/vocalist Jared Anderson but rejoined the band earlier this year amid rumors of a possible reunion with former vocalist David Vincent.

IMMORTAL - don't split up?

Again news about 'broken' IMMORTAL. Right after Abbath and team announced they splitted up, IMMORTAL's label Nuclear Blast reported, that "The rumours about the split of Immortal aren't 100% correct. In fact, IMMORTAL will simply take a long break, as the musicians need to rest a while after 12 months of excessive touring.

To start with, the debut album of Grimfist will probably be released in September on Candlelight Records, with Horgh on drums."
